Ellie Petrie in Year 8 competed as part of a team in The British Acrobatic Championships against the best teams in Europe. The top 8 of 18 teams were to qualify to progress through to the finals. The competition was of a very good standard and the girls were determined to attempt to reach the finals. On day one they managed to be placed 7th and were delighted! So for the finals. Anything over 7th would have been tremendous and after performing a fantastic routine the girls ended up getting placed 5th, which was an immense achievement! The girls have now been moved up a level and are practising very complicated moves ready for the next competition.
We wish Ellie and the rest of the team success and best wishes when they compete at this next level.
